Quick dodo eye test, As some of you know in my “ever shrinking” spare time Ive been working on a dodo recreation, (more info in below pic link) I very rarely post my non-doll sculpting work so i thought it would be fun to share something a little different.. I cast the face in a slightly translucent light blue-grey resin, as dodos (at least from what little evidence is left) had bluish grey faces, with a few vivid blue highlights and some dark grey/grey green to black areas around the eyes and on the skin of the lower beak. Still needs to be painted of course, attached to the body then feathered.. the eyes are from an eye maker in Malta who specializes in birds.. The skull in the background is a museum cast of the dodo specimen in the royal Ontario museum. I used the cast as a base for sculpting my final.
